    many people swear by Brasso, followed by a polish with silver duraglit. I have used this myself. As with anything, try a small area first.

    Bought some cream from a caravan dealer when we were tuggers. Can't remember what it was called but it was a small yellow tube and it worked on the faint scratches you get when you use a gritty sponge (it was the wife, honest). Don't know if it would work on yours but it's worth a try. :BigGrin:

    Hi,
    Rubbing, or cutting, compound for paint works really well.
    I do not like metal polish (Brasso) as it is slightly acidic

    Old fashioned remedy to remove stratches - fag ash mixed with a little water and rub carefully.

    For any fallout, black spots, etc on plastic windows, I have used a clay bar with lubricant, often used with car valeting. Works really well without leaving marks.

    :Sad:And you didn't call in to see us:Eeek::cry:
    Why not?

    It is lovely down these parts. We just live with the scratches, else it'd be like the 4th bridge!
    Hope you're both keeping well.

    Brasso also works on plastic sunglasses lens and plastic watch glasses - magic.

    One of my kids scraped a badminton racket across a window and I used Colgate toothpaste and a dirty sock (one of the kids!) and it took the scratch out a treat.

    Wait until your eyesight begins to go, then you won't see them any more.

    Hi, I've read all the posts about scratches on Perspex windows but my windscreen is glass and has some scratched caused by grit, any ideas.
